Valentine’s Day Craft Party

Having a birthday one week before Valentine’s Day, I’ve always been obsessed with all things red, pink and hearts. So naturally I want my kids to share the same love for Valentine’s Day that I have. So to get them excited for “the holiday after Christmas but before Easter” like what my 5 year old says, I decided to throw a little craft party.

We invited all the cousins (there are so many cousins, that with them alone it’s a party).

Décor Details:


We ate:

  • Cupcakes
  • Chocolate fondue with Pretzels and Marshmallows

I used these cute arrows as toothpicks so the kids could dip the marshmallows in the chocolate without getting their fingers dirty (their fingers still got dirty)

We first made the Valentine’s Bag:

Items needed for the bag:

Next we made a Valentine’s Button Frame:

Items needed:


  • Glue to popsicle sticks to make a frame
  • Next, Glue your picture to the back part of the popsicle sticks frame
  • Then, Glue the buttons to the front part of the frame
  • (Extra) but magnets to glue to the back of the frame so you can put it on your fridge!

Next we made cards:

Items needed:

Lastly I gave them “Love Bugs” to put in their Valentine’s bag:

It truly was a lot of fun, and the kids were so involved and into it. This is definitely something we’ll be doing every year with all the cousins.

We ordered all our supplies from Oriental Trading. Do you remember that big catalog your mom use to get filled with everything a teacher could need, or a true craft junkie could hoard….well that’s them! Ordering online with them was super fun and easy! From submitting my order to receiving it, it was a total of 6 days! Super fast and amazing customer service. Everything I needed for this craft party was on one site, which is huge for me. Like most moms, I don’t have time to search 20 different sites and stores, it’s all in one place
